Skyrim Sells 3.4M in 48 Hours?

According to the guesstimate on VGChartz, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has sold over 3.4 million copies in 48 hours, a figure which does not include digital sales. They say: "59% of units were sold on the X360 (over 2 million copies) and 27% on the PS3, with 14% on PC." Thanks Lens of Truth via Reddit.

Are you kidding? While the game doesn't "look like crap", it still does look dated, circa 2008. The textures are weak, weak, weak. So yes, I for one will be clamoring for higher res textures.

Calling them weak seems a bit much. I'd love for higher quality ones but they don't detract from the experience in any way and thematically most seem to fit very well.

Nope. The launcher requires steam, the game itself doesn't. You can fudge down the skyrim stats by simply running the skyrim.exe, it's not encrypted. And doesn't require steam to run.

Right but everyone has to at least activate on Steam was his point I guess. Sure there will be people running it without Steam but I don't think that'll be significant numbers. The concurrent figures are impressive but don't tell the whole story, I'm sure the figure far surpasses it considering all of the timezone nonsense, differing routines and so on.

So, yes, some PC gamers are entitled shits. I knew it was too much to hope for.

Some of the textures close up are quite low resolution, but that's what we paid for. That's not a bug and Skyrim wasn't mis-sold. When I saw it was about 6GB I thought the textures probably wouldn't be great but if they brought out a 15GB, parallax mapped patch then I would be very happy, but I'm not entitled to it and I've no right to clamour for it.

You could be right about the Steam stats then. I bought it through Steam so I was just using the fact that Steam is a PC requirement, but if that is easily by-passed then it's not reliable.
